English abstract:
Observing and monitoring the different components of
the global water cycle and their dynamics are essential
to understand the climate of the Earth, forecast our
weather, predict natural disasters like floods and
droughts, and improve water management for human
use. Earth Observation (EO) Technology is a unique
tool to provide a global understanding of many of the
variables governing the water cycle and monitor their
evolution over time from global to basin scales. In this
context, in 2009, ESA, in collaboration with the Global
Energy and Water Cycle Experiment of the World
Climate Research Program, launched the WACMOS
project (Water Cycle Multi-Mission Observation
Strategy) to support the development of novel
techniques to study the water cycle with satellites.
